Coffee Talk: Progress is your most important capability

I was originally planning on putting up another blog post in my travel series this week, but then something happened and I no longer felt like writing about a subject as simple as that. That’s the thing though, sometimes things happen in life that you don’t expect, and when those things do occur, you need […]

Adventuring 101: What to Pack

Packing only what you need can be difficult. Before you know it, a five-day vacation can turn into clothing for a week and a half. At that point, you’re carrying way more than you need. “Just in case” items aren’t a bad thing to take with you, but keep them to a minimum. I actually […]

Adventuring 101: The Planning Process

Planning is my thing. Especially when it comes to vacations or trips of any sort. So it’s really no surprise that I enjoyed every second of planning a visit to Florida/Disney this upcoming spring break. My boyfriend definitely couldn’t wait for all of the reservations to be made because I refused to make a decision […]

Cheers to a New Year

Well. That’s it. 2017 is in the past and 2018 is now the present. And as the year itself changes to be one year older, so do I. 19 is in the past, and now I enter the years of my 20s. I’m no longer a teenager – and that’s probably one of the weirdest […]

Stop looking.

So originally I planned on writing this post on the plane ride back from Nashville or in the airport terminal, but instead I’m writing it as I’m on my way there because I can’t find the sheet with all my Astronomy questions for homework. (Editing note: I’m in Nashville currently!) But hey, things happen, right? […]

It’s been a year.

365 days. But it sure as hell doesn’t feel like it. For those of you who don’t know, I lost my Nonna to cancer exactly one year ago from this morning. I remember the day like it was yesterday. I remember waking up at 4 AM. I remember checking my phone. I remember my dad […]

Your mental disorder doesn’t make you a burden. And you need to know that.

It’s pretty weird how the world works sometimes. I’ve struggled, and continue to struggle, with my anxiety. But I think what has allowed me to get through bad days is the fact that my closest friends understand what I’m experiencing because they’re dealing with their own struggles too. None of us knew we would be […]

Lasting Impressions

I’m not quite sure why certain people leave a mark that stands out more than others. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be a good event for it to happen. There’s just a certain thing about some people, or some situations, that sticks with you. And no matter how hard you try to forget about […]

Text me, Snap me, But don’t ever say you’re dating me.

Guess what? I have a Bumble profile. So do the majority of people nowadays. Whether it’s Bumble, Tinder, or any other dating app, a lot of single people have tried at least one. In fact, according to a Statista Survey, 19 percent of people currently use a dating app or online website, and 27 percent […]

Day Trip to the Medieval Period

My cousins, sister and I attempt to have a day together at least once every two months or so. Since we all had crazy schedules this summer, that wasn’t really able to happen. And then September rolled around. My younger cousin went off to begin his freshman year of college. I started my junior year. […]
